January's bead Journal Finally Started!

So, I have finally started my January BJP, and I must say
I am have fun!  I did not use the color palette that I showed
in pictures in my last blog, I was using those colors in a
practice piece.  I am working in size 6"X9"...
OK, ok.   I know it's big, but I feel bigger is easier
& will give me space to explore. well, it sounds good, anyway.
I just started drawing i my sketchbook, which is 6X9,
and went from there.  Someone remind me
of my Bigger is easier" theory in a few months, PLEASE?
I have decided to take the words of a song I like
as my inspiration for each piece this year.  I love music
& wording is very important in my choices.  I was going through
some of the Blogs last week & found "PLAYLIST" on a couple,
and thrilled to find I could add it to my Blog, too!  I had so much
fun picking songs, that I spent more hours doing that instead of
working on my beading!  It was then I realized I needed to
incorporate the two.
So, this month's inspiration is the words to the song "The Climb",
 by Miley Cyrus...
Yes, she is quite young, but the words to that song can be
for any age, any time in life.
I will post photos when I am a bit further along...
my color choices or where I am at the moment are crucial.

Happy Beading everyone!

You know what...6X9 is BIG, but you don't have to totally encrust the whole piece. You can let the fabric underneath show through

I've had a couple of thoughts to bead that 6 X 9 would probably be great for, but I've gone small-ish for my first year instead.

Neat idea to use songs as the inspirations, I think incorporating the two sounds like just the thing for you! Can't wait to see what you create!

6"X9"...big, yes, I am seeing that, but I also see it as a way to push me to keep beading, keep moving forward & trying new things!
We'll see if I still feel that way, right?

Thanks Robin...

I'm just "singing" my way through this!
(Ha, ha, ha).
I did start & you can check out my Blog to see where I'm at so far...

I have a thing about color & I am realizing it's holding me up in my work progress. I need to let go a bit more & just "see where it takes me"...
Just let my inner child have a bit of fun!
We'll see!
